Mayo County Council has developed its Climate Adaptation Strategy - Climate Ready Mayo. This Strategy sets out a vision for a county that will be climate ready, a county that understands how climate change will affect our communities and businesses, and a county that works together to reduce the risk and avail of the opportunities that climate change will bring. 

This Strategy sets out the strategic priorities, measures and responses for adaptation in Mayo County Council over the next 5 years. The Strategy includes a range of actions across five operational themes: Governance, Critical Infrastructure & Buildings, Natural & Cultural Capital, Water Resources & Flood Management and Community Services. 

To ensure a fully integrated Climate Adaptation Strategy workshops were held with all Heads of Section and steering group to develop the Climate Adaptation Strategy This working group are now continuing to work together to meet all the targets set out in the Adaptation Strategy, with the first action implementation plans completed by December 2019. 

The methodology used by Mayo County Council and the strategy have become the template provided by CARO for the region which each county in this region adopted their version from.
